How to Make Your Hotel Room Homely

You may be feeling a little homesick, even if you're in the most exotic place in the world. Traveling far too often can take a toll on you, and you find yourself craving for something familiar. Sometimes, nothing beats your own personal space. You need to feel like you're home away from home.

Whether you're a frequent flyer constantly on the road or a would-be vacationer with homebody impulses, here are 5 tips to make your hotel room more homely:

1. Bring an iPad with previously downloaded shows & movies

Bring along your iPad or a small electronic device pre-loaded with a few episodes of your favorite shows. Or you can binge-watch on Netflix watching The Good Place, Money Heist, Stranger Things, or The Office. This will be a fun and familiar experience.

2. Pack lounging clothes

Retire your ratty old high school gym sweats. It's time to invest in an actual pajama set.

Make sure to pack lounging pants or sleep socks you'd wear at home or even a small fleece blanket you'd snuggle into at the end of a long day. It will make your hotel room less impersonal and feel more like returning to your own comfortable space.

The best loungewear is perfect for relaxing in your homely hotel room. Plus, it's stylish enough that you wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen in it. Upgrading your "hang around the house" wardrobe can impact your overall mood. There are tons of options that are as attractive as they are comfortable, from sleepwear to leggings, so you can look as good as you feel while watching Netflix.

3. Invest in a hamman towel

This versatile little piece can double up as a beach sarong, a stylish scarf or summer wrap, a bed or sofa blanket, a pretty and practical tablecloth, a snuggly shawl for babies, a yoga blanket or picnic rug. Hamman towels are versatile travel gems.

These towels behave in the exact opposite way to the traditional terry towels we usually have in our homes. Turkish towels are flat-woven. They will become softer, suppler, and more absorbent every time you wash them.

4. Bedding

We all love our beds. We tend to miss them when we're away from them longer than 12 hours. Since it's not practical to bring a whole queen set in your carry-on, just bring a pair of matching pillowcases to provide you with a familiar night's rest.

Pack a linen spritzer to give the hotel bed linen a little touch of your favorite smell. Sleeping in your sheets' smell will make you feel comfortable.

5. Buy snacks

Do yourself a solid favor and swing by a local grocery store or convenience store to buy some familiar snacks. Eat on a regular schedule.

Protein bars, "just add hot water" soup cups, individual servings of cereal, and oatmeal are some to note. Fresh-pressed juice always takes up residence hotel fridges.
